Brinsley Schwarz is a 1970s English pub rock band named for guitarist Brinsley Schwarz.

Brinsley Schwarz signed a contract with manager Dave Robinson, who developed a plan to earn the band much publicity. They were to open for Van Morrison at the Fillmore East in New York City, and Robinson would fly all the leading British rock critics to the show so they could review it. Though the band had planned on leaving a few days early so they could rehearse, visa problems prevented this and they arrived in New York right before they were to begin. The critics' plane was delayed for four hours, and they arrived at the show either drunk or hung over. The show did not go over well, and the band received a flood of negative reviews over the course of the next few weeks.

In 1970 (see 1970 in music), Brinsley Schwarz released Despite It All, which had a definite country sound to it, after adding Ian Gomm. Their wild performances soon garnered the band a large fanbase at English pubs, such as Tally Ho in Kentish Town. Along with other bands like Eggs Over Easy, Brinsley Schwarz was soon dubbed "pub rock" by rock journalists.

CMT.com : Brinsley Schwarz : Biography (1025 words)
Brinsley Schwarz was a rambling, neo-psychedelic folk-rock band that borrowed heavily from Crosby, Stills & Nash and the Grateful Dead.
When Brinsley Schwarz finally hit the stage, the band gave a competent but underwhelming performance, setting the stage for a flood of scathing reviews for both the concert and the eponymously titled debut album, which appeared weeks after the showcase.
By the end of 1970, the Brinsleys released a second album, Despite It All, which indicated that they were evolving into a country-rock outfit; guitarist/vocalist Ian Gomm joined the band at the end of the sessions for the record.
